    well i did a search but wasn’t really sure what to search for. i found your game today and being a huge fan of the original i thought i owuld try it… i downloaded it and installed it.

    tried to run it… screen goes black like its starting the game, then im in like a transparent mode where i can see my desktop but i have a different colored mouse and i can’t click anything…. ctrl+alt+delete and it says its running but i can’t get to it.

    any help?

    The game will stop responding for a few secs when loading all of the tanks and textures. It should be ok if left for a while. Try choosing all low detail from the scorched3d display settings dialog.

    This spec and card should work fine.

    Ya know Gavin, with new tanks being added all the time you might need to switch to just showing pictures of the tanks instead of the models in the tank select screen or otherwise it might take all day to load.

    this would be a very good idea

    tried that tonight but it didn’t work…. let it set for 30+ min and it never did anything else. i had everything turned off so it would be just a basic no graphics game. but still wouldn’t do anything.

    any other suggestions?

    Yeah, this is a good idea.

    We may have to do this but we can’t do the cool rotating tanks if I do this. /* thinking about it */ Unless we only load the model for the selected tank, hmm I’ll think about this.

    ok i tried loading scorched3d on a slower computer

    amd athlon 700
    512 ram
    128 vid card

    and it worked… anyone know why it would work on my slower computer but not on my main faster computer with the specs in the original post?

    had everything loaded(all graphics on) when i loaded on the slower computer also.
